the obama campaign as centralized as any of them but right now they are able to measure the certain types of volunteer interactions and campaigns are willing to see a little bit of control and not assume the message is always best processed and carried through the mail that's designed in the headquarters but that there is a benefit to having people talking to people especially if you have done the difficult invisible work when and what and the campaigns are still waiting in. i look at the obama campaign inouye and i think that they were quite good at sort of molding the left brain and right brain approach to the modern campaigns and the will to spend lots of money and data and field staff and i think looking through that is one of the things that this grant be the most important figuring out how the campaigns, it's certainly true online how they can balance their need and desire for control to control their message, centralize their tactics and strategy but also maximize the energy and talent and value of their supporters doing things on their own to other voters. >> host: i would imagine

and even the politicians like obama last night who said this isn't a mudslinging campaign, even though we can't change the super subs are right now, how do we change from mudslinging to actual information about the politicians will do if they are elected versus just killing other people's campaigns. >> you know it's funny -- [applause] your reform is hard because one way we tried to stop that, the nastiness was by requiring candidates to appear themselves and say i am alex and i approve this message. so now they go on and approve the message that is mudslinging. so you know, that doesn't help. you know, first of all i'm sorry that young people don't want to read more sources and get our information, but a friend of mine named steve who taught at m.i.t. now teaches at harvard were to talk about negative campaigning may be 10 years ago, 12 years ago and his conclusion, sadly for him and for my story is that a works. i don't know an answer, but i will say that i share your feeling. this particular campaign has been very light on serious vision. you know, it has been mostly used when talking

is there a way, are you doing anything to get into the debate cycle with obama and romney? >> host: we had a similar question, governor johnson, via twitter. what do you say? >> guest: well, right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission that determines who gets in the debates is the presidential debate commission, and guess what? the presidential debate commission is private, and they're made up of republicans and democrats with absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have filed lawsuits. there doesn't seem to be, there doesn't seem to be much hope, but we filed on anti-trust grounds, something that has not been done before. >> host: how much do these debates matter, gary johnson, and what are you looking forward to hearing on wednesday? >> guest: well, the debates are tantamount to my having a chance at winning. without being on the debates, i think that, um, you know, you can just kind of close the lid on being able to win the campaign -- win the election.

's not the congress, you're right, i've never been in congress, but i will be soon. but the congress did this and do that because obama did this and that. but let me tell you something. the constitution says that congress establishes the budget. so for you to stand here and say to you that you did not vote for this questor when you get -- this is not magical thinking. this is reality. i am not attacking you. i am describing you. it is a very difficult process. but i am trying. but you supported it and now you don't. there's a good reason why because you need to sit down and talk. >> moderator: let me ask one final question before we get to the concluding remark. that issue is one issue that has been on the virginia business community and the transportation infrastructure in virginia, virginia has been blessed to be called busted for doing business for a number of magazines for 10 or 15 or 20 years now. one of the issues that has arisen recently, they said we weren't doing enough for the transportation infrastructure. congressman cantor, is there anything that the federal government can be doing to a

the structure of the political dialogue and right now for the last two years that is a mess frankly and that is a byproduct of having divided government. is not the rules committee's fault. in part it's obama's fault but i think it's in ways a byproduct of what it means to have divided government so that is something we have to begin to think about as we think about how to structure, how the house works and what kinds of tools we should build on the outside. real quickly with the time notifications here when i look at those different categories of congressional information, two of the things we worked really hard on working with, one is taking advantage of the political pressures that exist and we can create those nonprofits would love to be able to generate political pressure especially for things like this it's impossible. we take what we can get in for house reform with a majority having changed hands twice in the last six years or so, that means a lot as change recently. that puts us, the house and a more responsive posture. and then the other thing i want to mention is broad no
